The Niagara Falls Humane Society is dedicated to providing compassionate care and shelter for abandoned, abused and injured companion animals. A safe refuge and temporary home is provided until a loving, permanent and responsible home can be found. NFHS also provides community education, animal control services and a vibrant and varied volunteer program. (Wally below at the shelter .. why not come and visit him)?


NFHS is fortunate to have the support of pet stores  Paulmac’s, Pet Valu and Petsmart who all provide support and satellite adoption sites for cats. Cats are also available at Niagara Square’s Adoption Centre (thanks to Niagara Square’s generous donation of space!) which is open during mall hours. The shelter’s adoption room also provides the opportunity to spend time choosing the right cat for your family.


Stay up to date on all our news by keeping your eye on our website, and check out our Homeward Bound column in Niagara This Week, The Wag in The Town Crier, PetSearch in the Niagara Falls Review, and of course our newest column, Lean On Me, here on Niagara Buzz. And watch for Home to stay on Cogeco cable ten every week from Thursday to Sunday. We love to share our stories and thoughts with our supporters, and we love to hear from you.

We always have something going on to raise funds to help the animals. There is a raffle for an adorable Scentsy owl warmer at the Adoption Centre right now. We have our Trivia Night coming up on April 22, and our fun-filled Ruff Night event on April 30. We also have bingo every month, the next date is April 17th at Delta Bingo.
